Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado

Title: Outlive Your Life
Author: Max Lucado
Rating: Good
Reason for Reading: I received this book from the book review program.

Summary: This book is a siren call to live out the principles of a Christian spiritual walk. Lucado interweaves stories of the apostles and the early church with contemporary examples of how to put your Christian faith into action. It includes inspiring accounts of individuals and groups who did more than talk the talk, they walked the walked and the effects of their live outlived them.
Review: Max has prepared another book just at the right time. At a time when so many people are out of work, Max reminds everyone that there is always an opportunity to do something that will make a difference and potentially outlive you. Lucado is highlighting the book of Acts, which is often overlooked in the study of the Bible. As the name would imply, it instructs us not how to “be” a follower of Christ, but to “do” the following.
If you feel like you are spinning your wheels, like what you do doesn’t matter, or that your faith isn’t manifest in your actions, this book will remind you, instruct you, and inspire you to do things, take actions, and make the difference God built you for.
